The 2014-15 school year is underway and enrollment has increased. Students are actively engaged in learning in classrooms while construction crews and architects focus on projects approved by Cache patrons in the recent building bond.

The major projects of the building bond are the following:  

Two new high schools

A new Lewiston Elementary School adjacent to the old school

Seismic upgrades and remodels for Summit, Providence and Millville Elementary schools along with new gyms for Millville and Sunrise Elementary

Minor modifications to convert current middle schools into K-6 schools

Design West is the architect firm for all bond projects. Construction on the bond projects is progressing under the direction of contractor Darrell Anderson Construction. At the Millville High School site the major earthwork is complete, footings have been started and floor slabs are being poured. We are nearing the final campus design on the high school in North Logan and site work is anticipated this fall. Red brick walls are rising on the new Lewiston Elementary in contrast to the current old yellow brick school. The old Providence gym and cafeteria have been removed and construction will soon begin there, as well.

Construction is scheduled to be finished by August 2016 on south-end schools. At that time, south-end schools in Cache District will transition to a K-6, 7-8 and 9-12 configuration. North-end schools will transition in August of 2017.

Interested patrons may go to the district website, to see the proposed attendance areas, opening student counts and capacities for all schools. Under the District News tab, select the Bond Projects Update. Select K-6 Elementary Schools, 7-8 Middle Schools or 9-12 High Schools for detailed information.

Any questions regarding these projects may be answered by calling the district office.
